IoD North Wales invites business leaders to discuss Mastermind Group

Business leaders from North Wales are invited to attend this breakfast to discover the benefits of peer-to-peer learning. The event will help the IoD shape a possible Mastermind programme in North Wales, which invites members to share business ideas, issues, and challenges in a constructive environment.

The programme, first launched by the IoD’s branches in England, has received glowing praise from members and is now earmarked to be rolled out in Wales. David Roberts, who runs The Alternative Board, will host the session to explain how peer-to-peer advisory sessions work. Mastermind is available to IoD members only as part of their standard membership benefits. Groups are kept to a maximum of 12-15 members to build a strong and trusting environment.

The programme will be an exciting IoD member led benefit that has achieved significant success operating in other IoD regions as part of their membership. Peer-to-peer sessions, will run in a structured way, which will have huge benefits for business leaders. The sessions are held in an informal but challenging setting, allowing delegates to confront the day-to-day issues they face in business.

You don’t need to be a company director to join the IoD. Senior managers are welcome, whether from large public organisations or small family firms.
